Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MattJ Very difficult assembly
I'm surprised Home Depot still sells this. The construction is very very sloppy. About half of the holes do not line up correctly and the screws need to be forced. The packaging is flimsy and so the side panels come dented.
At about 3 points during the 1.5 hour assembly I was ready to throw in the towel and just return it. Although the instructions say all you need is a Phillips head screwdriver, plan on using half of your toolbox to get it together.

Absolutely a pile of garbage. As other reviewers have stated, the assembly is a nightmare, construction is flimsy and the overall item is just cheap.
The parts look like they've been through a hurricane, out of the box. None of the screw holes line up properly and you have to have the incredible hulk bend them back into alignment in order to assemble. The assembly LOOKS straightforward in the directions, but lousy product makes it otherwise. It took me longer to assemble this pile than it did my much larger Weber grill with 10 times as many parts.
Once assembled, it just looks and feels cheap. I could never get it to sit flat on any surface. I had a bad flareup and it severely warped the firebox. I would not expect that to happen even with a low quality grill.
The metal pieces are way too thin and the edges are super sharp, which is dangerous. The finish on the grill surface started flaking off almost immediately after the first use.
I can't believe anyone would carry this in their store, if it wasn't such a huge hassle I would bring it back and ask for my money back. I cannot imagine a single person has ever bought this and been pleased with it. This belongs in a gag store next to the dribble glasses and telescope that gives you a black eye.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dgb123 this product was a gift for someone
the instructions were not very clear the picture showed the parts and when you looked at the picture to put it together the part would be upside down.the grates and the tray for the charcoal is strong and the sides could be a little thicker there was a dent on the side on one piece but i straightened it out. the bottom is very heavy so it could not be blown over.

I purchased this grill today at my local Home Depot. The holes for the screws don't line up like they should and you have to force some of the screws to fit. It is made of a thin metal. I was hoping to use it but it rained today. I hope it works after all the trouble I had putting it together

Bought this grill last summer when our cheap charbroil's legs finally broke. My husband was able to get it together within a half hour with no issues. It is a little wobbly, but it could just be our slate stone patio. Food comes out great. No issues with anything other than the cover home depot sells for it doesn't close really.
